Without crawling inderneath our car to look, I'd say the tire hit your fuel tank and dented it or tore a hole in it. The fuel pump and fuel guagesending unit are in the fuel tank, and the pump itself sits pretty much at the bottom of the tank. If the chunk of tire put a big enough dent in the tank, it could dislodge the pump or put it in a spot where it would not pick up any fuel. I once hit a racoon that I couldn't avoid and it ripped the muffler clear off my car. Highway speeds and decent sized objects can cause some pretty serious damage to cars.

Single beep from console/dashboard area.


If the gas( or any gauge) is low or maybe an exterior light out. There will be a light on in the dash. The beep is there to remind you to look at the dash. Could be door open,trunk, hood, gas lid.. could be some engineer just did it to annoy us.

Hello,
I do agree with the person who mentioned
" Tire Noise". A few moments spent with a knowledgeable tire dealer will help
in your choice when it comes time for replacement,
Enjoy your Benz. A little homework will quiet it down real nice.

1997 passat, need winter tires. 215 50 15, oem's. What sizes can I go to for replacement? Phil.


If it were my car I would try to stick to a 215 15 with a mud and snow or M+S tread design but I would be looking for a middle number of 70 not 50. The middle number is the width of the tread and in snow a skinny tire is better than a wide tire. It will cut through instead of float over. Floating is okay until you spin, then you are done. Disregard any sales pitch about all season treads being good for winter. It should be illegal for them to claim that because they are no good in any amout of snow more than 2 flakes thick. You could go down to a 205 15 without a lot of trouble but any smaller will start to lower the front of your car significantly. If you go to a larger 225 then you may run into issues with steering and suspension travel, not to mention they will cost a little more. If you live in an area with a lot of ice during the winter you may want to consider studding the tires. It will make a difference but if most of your winter driving is on bare or nearly bare roads don't bother. Studs can be a problem on bare roads and most places have strict rules about when you can put them on and when they come off.
Look for a 215-70-15 or a 205-70-15 for the best results. If you can get a 75 even better but try to stay away from a 50 for winter driving if you can. Hope this helps.

2003 Ford Ranger Pickup traveling down the road


Is there somthing hitting the gas pedal, like the floor mat? Or maybe something under the dash came loose and is getting caught under the brake pedal and pushing on the gas. Put the shifter in neutral if you get into a situation where going to hit something or someone. The engine has a rev limiter, to prevent it from over reving.

95 sedan deville wont start and says fuel low with gas in tank


I'd start by tracing the fuel supply and return lines from the gas tank to the engine compartment. Make sure that they are free of kinks or other damage.

Next, check the fuse box and make sure there is power to the fuel pump. Trace the electrical connections leaving the fuel tank and make sure they weren't torn or otherwise damaged by the tire tread.

Hope this helps and good luck!

ESP light on 2005 Golf


ESP is the Electronic Stability Programme - it only comes on if the engine computer needs to make adjustments for poor driving or road surface conditions. If it is on all the time (and you are not driving down a country road) then you should get it checked out.

P.S. Sometimes low tire inflation will cause the problem. Winter tires depending on the tread will also cause this error.

Take to a local parts store and have the engine code read. Could be a multitude or combination of different problems.
